City of Tucson Water Department East Side Satellite Facility
Tucson, Arizona

Lang Wyatt is working with the City of Tucson and an architect to build this new $5 million facility on Tucson's east side for Tucson Water.  The facility is located in a residential neighborhood, and was designed to minimize noise intrusion, as well as visual intrusion.  Roof heights are kept at a lower elevation and slope with the site, and mechanical units are kept off the roofs.  Building circulation and parking are in a compact area to minimize site impact.

The design is simple creative metal buildings which minimizes the cost of the facilities and allowed the budget to absorb equipment and systems desired by the client, including cranes, welding, training equipment, and furnishings.  The building is LEED® registered and is expected to achieve a LEED®  Silver Rating.  Construction will be complete in 2009.

Green Valley Fire District – Stations 151 & 155
Green Valley, Arizona

Lang Wyatt is working in a Construction Manager at Risk relationship with WSM architects to build two new fire stations totaling $7.5 million for Green Valley Fire District in the retirement community of Green Valley, south of Tucson.  Station 151 is a four-bay station and Station 155 is a three-bay station.  Each station is subject to significantly different local aesthetics, but a standardized program and conceptual space plan was developed which allows the flexibility necessary to find a solution that fits the site and the surrounding neighborhood.

Both stations will be pursuing LEED® Silver Certification, reflecting the District's commitment to the community and the environment.  A standing seam metal roof will allow integration of building-mounted photovoltaic panels.
